End-to-end encryption won’t be going to all clients’ video calls
Zoom will add more secured encryption to its paid clients’ video calls, yet isn’t intending to offer the upgraded security to all users, Reuters revealed. A security expert with the organization revealed to Reuters that it despite everything wasn’t evident whether a few accounts, for example, free users, may fit for the more secure calls.
The videoconferencing platform has blasted in fame during the coronavirus pandemic, yet has been tormented by myriad security issues. Those incorporate Zoombombing, where an excluded visitor attacks a video call and disturbs it with porn content or other stun content.
Adding full end-to-end encryption on each video call, however, would prohibit users who call in from phone lines. What’s more, Reuters revealed more tight encryption would not permit Zoom’s own security team to add themselves to calls to help users continuously.
Zoom distributed a draft paper May 22nd mentioning some of its encryption plans.
